Pokemon Go" Mobile Game Safely

The Department of Safety and Security (DSS) would like to advise all staff and students: 

1) Don't get so engrossed in the game that you lose awareness of what's happening around you. 

2) Be cautious any time you share your location through GPS technology. 

3) Be aware of your personal safety when out looking for Pokemon. 

4) Watch where you are walking, be aware of your surroundings and do not walk out into roads without looking. 

5) Do not play the game and drive any vehicle or ride any personal mobility device at the same time. You cannot do both safely. 

6) Do not trespass onto restricted areas and private properties. Do not take pictures of restricted areas. 

7) Be aware that you are potentially sharing data with others; there could be potential criminals who may seek the opportunity to lure victims to their fake "Pokestops".

Personal Safety Tips

The following personal safety tips are designed to help you to be more aware of your surroundings, and to help protect yourself by taking step towards crime prevention.


Surroundings

Be aware of your surroundings. If you feel uncomfortable with a person or situation, or if you see something suspicious, do not hesitate to call the police.

Walk with a friend to campus is better than walking alone. If you walk alone make sure you look at the surroundings and always be on the alert. Do not use shortcuts.


Vehicle Safety

Make sure you have your keys ready when approaching your car. Look under and around as you approach your car. Look inside your car before getting in, carefully checking the back seat area.

Immediately lock your doors once you are inside the vehicle.

Do not place your valuables items on the front passenger seat. Always keep your car locked.

 
Home Safety

Always lock the doors and windows of your house. Close curtains at night.

When someone knocks on your door, check first before opening the door. Open the door only if you know the person. If the person claims to be contractor/utility staff and you were not expecting that person, open the door only after verifying (with your landlord or the company the person works for) the reason for the visit.

If you come home and find a door or window open unexpectedly, you are advised not to enter your house and immediately call the police. If you notice a suspicious person/s near your residence, do not hesitate to call the police.

 
Thank you

Safety at Home

SAFETY AT HOME

 

KNOW THE RISK: Twice as many robberies happen in private homes or apartments/flats. Make sure all the doors and windows have good locks before you move in.

 

LOCK IT UP: Half of all robberies happen on the spur of the moment through unlocked doors or windows. Always lock your door.

 



DON’T SHOW IT OFF: Make sure your TV, DVD, computer and other valuables can’t be seen from the window, and never leave cash lying around.

 



 

KEYS: Don’t leave spare keys outside in a flower pot or under the mat outside the front door. Keep house and car keys out of sight in the house.

 

INSURANCE: The average cost of a house robbery is RM5000.  Insurance is cheaper! At least get covered for your most valuable items like your computer, TV, stereo and bicycle etc. Keep lists of the brand, model and serial numbers of your electronic items to help police track them down if they are stolen.

 

PERMANENT MARKERS: Use a permanent marker pen to mark your items with your university name and student ID number. They’re very cheap and easily available.

 

 

HOLIDAYS: If you can’t take your valuables with you during the trimester breaks, arrange for them to be held in a secure storage or leave it with a friend.

 



SAFETY FIRST: If you see signs of a house break-in—like smashed windows or open doors—don’t go in. Go to a friend or neighbour’s house and call the police.

 

 

Thank you

Beware of Snatch Theft

To all female staff and students,

Kindly take note that in the last two days, four female students have been a victim of snatch theft along Jalan Perdana near the East Gate roundabout or in the vicinity of Tesco.

Female students and staff who commute to the University by foot or bicycle are advised to:

1. Always move in a group and never be alone when traveling along the above road
2. Never to leave their bags containing valuables in the vehicle basket of the bicycles
3. Be wary of a male Indian man, aged about 20 to 30 years old, on a motorcycle whose modus operandi is to come from the rear and help himself of any bags containing valuables that is kept in the bicycle basket.

Remember crime prevention is your personal responsibility.

NOTICE ON CAR THEFT PREVENTION

The university is concerned of the recent car theft took place at vehicle parking area outside UTAR compound leading to Taman Perdana.  There were 2 incident reported involved student’s car on 3rd and 9th March 2015.  The university believes there is a car theft syndicate targeting student’s car parked outside the campus. Police assistance to increase the frequency of police patrol has been requested.

 

Car theft can be greatly reduced with a few simple precautions:

  •  Always Lock your Car!  Ensure roll up the window and keep the car locked at all times, even if it’s parked on your property or inside campus.
  •  Don’t Leave Valuables on Display in the Car! Never leave valuables in plain view, even if your car is locked. Put them in the trunk or at least out of sight.
  •  Sensible Parking!  Park where passers-by may serve as a deterrent to thieves. If you have a choice, don’t park at an intersection at the end of a line of parked cars. The car is thus vulnerable to towing by thieves. When parked at a curb, turn front wheels sharply toward curb.
  •  Install Mechanical Device! Install a mechanical locking device that lock to the steering wheel or brake to prevent the wheel being turned more than a few degrees.
  •  Invest in an Alarm System!  Have an alarm system installed in your car, loud alarms will quickly deter car theft.

Following most of above advice will not cost you a penny, take very little time, and could save thousands of money. The MOST important thing YOU can do is CALL THE POLICE OR UNIVERSITY SECURITY to report a CRIME or any SUSPICIOUS activity.

 

Thank you

Subject: "Scratch & Win" Syndicates



Dear all students,

The University has received reports from the Police Department that there are "Scratch and Win" syndicates operating at major cities in Malaysia.

Please be aware of such scams in which the "winner" will be asked to pay a certain sum to claim the prizes.


You are advised to ignore those approaching you with this kind of tactic / scam. Please be alert always of strangers around you and do not communicate with them in any way.

Direct Selling or Pyramid Schemes

 


To all staff and students of UTAR,

It has come to our knowledge that there are recent efforts to recruit members for direct selling or pyramid schemes. People attending the recruitment sessions are asked to deposit money first and then recruit friends to join with promises of good return on investment.

The University strongly advise students and staff to be alert and to take extra care and not to participate in quick money making schemes which maybe illegal and you may lose your savings and investment. We also advises all students to focus on your studies and lead meaningful student lives.
